Best dive of the season!
What an incredible find! Last season I discovered a very interesting ridge (Lee Ridge) coming up from the Andros wall to a depth of 28m. This ridge captures the current and as such has created a healthy deeper reef with an abundance of life. This season, I could not believe my eyes when on new years morning, I descended upon hundreds of Nassau Grouper Epinephelus striatus forming a aggregating to spawn. This is a great sign for the local population which throughout its region has been harvested without consideration. For now this location remains a secret as if discovered, local fishermen could catch the entire spawning population, quite possibly the only one of the entire Andros barrier reef.
